How is your Arctic blast going? We are snuggled in over here and hoping for the best today. Thankfully our furnace was given an overhaul at Christmas so we should be nice and toasty! Speaking of toasty, this healthy slow cooker potato soup recipe will keep you nice and warm on these cold days!
Potato soup in the crokpot is one of my mom’s classic recipes. She often makes it when all of the family comes home for dinner and my mouth waters just thinking about it! She’s a bit more extra than me so her potato soup dinner includes homemade bread slathered with butter and fresh strawberry jam. It is something to BEHOLD.
But her daughter is not really a homemade bread on a weeknight type of girl so I like to just pair this with an easy side salad and a loaf of store-bought Italian or French bread. But if you are a homemade bread type of person like my mama, please you do you and make that homemade bread! More power to ya!
This easy potato soup recipe is perfect for busy nights because you can put it all together in the crockpot and just let it simmer away all day. The smell will eventually envelop your whole house and you’ll want to eat the furniture. (jk that’s not going to happen, it’s just going to smell good.)
